PORTRAIT GALLERY: Giving the first clues about where he might take Saint Laurent, new creative director Anthony Vaccarello has tapped American artist and fashion photographer Collier Schorr to lens a new image campaign — minus any new designs.
There are glimpses of clothes: a smidgen of T-shirt here, a bit of bra there. But the focus is “black-and-white portraits of individuals and couples; a hint of the future of the house. Fifteen new faces, shot in Paris,” according to YSL.
Sharing two images exclusively with WWD, Vaccarello plans to unveil more content on YSL’s web site and Instagram account on June 20, with placements in magazines starting two days later.
Vaccarello is to make his runway debut for Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week in October. The 36-year-old Belgian joined the storied French house last April, succeeding Hedi Slimane, who had renamed the house Saint Laurent and lensed all campaigns.
